Gas prices in Britain (Environmental News)

I just saw an interesting news report on NBC news* (6 pm, Washington D.C. area, Channel 4) on gas prices in England.
If you think gas prices in the U.S. are outrageous, they are a whooping $6.50/gallon in London. Things that Londoners and other Brits are doing to deal with soaring gas prices: building and driving smaller, more fuel efficient cars, using public transportion more often (especially buses), riding a bike, or walking. As the anchorman on NBC noted, we (Americans) could learn a lot from the British.

*The story isn't online yet (6 pm news just ended) but I'll try to post the new link if they post the story online.
*Update: I've been looking for the link on their website, but haven't been able to find it. I guess they only post certain stories online.
